Civil Aviation Authority PCAA Banned Use of Plastic Bags at Airports
Civil Aviation Authority Ne Mulk Bhar Ke Airports Per Plastic Bags Ke Istemaal Per Pabandi Aaid Kar Di.
The government looks to be countering its anti-polythene initiatives by introducing what several referred to as ‘bizarre’ baggage rules at the country’s field.
Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCCA) has issued a notification on July eighteenth creating it necessary for all the arrival baggage to be wrapped with plastic sheets.
According to the notification, the bags of all domestic and international passengers about to be|are} plastic-wrapped before going to the scanning counters of field personnel (ASF), Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) and Customs.
The notification out there with ProPakistani mentioned that worth for the wrapping are going to be charged Rs. fifty per bag and it’ll be effective forthwith.
While the authorities said the initiative was meant for luggage security, experts believe this will only bring a bad name to the country.
“Also this actually reflects poorly on Pakistan. By making this mandatory, you are telling the world we can NOT keep your bags safe while they are at our airports,” Norbet Almeida, Security Manager at Procter & Gambles and a writer at Dawn wrote this on Twitter.
